The Great Music Experiment: Taking the Great Cookie Experiment to the Web
Helping undergraduate nursing students understand the research process and equipping them to be good consumers of research presents a challenging agenda to faculty. When the word “research” is spoken, students often respond negatively because they consider it shrouded in mystery with a unique language. Wisneski reported that nursing students feel research is a “necessary evil” that must be faced to progress in the curriculum. 1 Phobias about research continue to interfere with learning and appreciating the role of research in nursing. 2 Teaching foundational concepts is requisite for nurses to use research for evidence-based practice. 1,3 Therefore, the importance of nursing students being informed consumers of research drives the search for strategies to teach research in an exciting and stimulating manner.
